Yesterday, Cathie and I taught a fun class at The Paperie called Designer Duos – Part 1 (I hope)!

I know she and I loved it and it pushed both of us out of our comfort zones a touch since we used colours for our base papers that we never use – orange for me and green for her. I don’t have pictures on Cathie’s LO yet but I’ll post that here when I add them. For now, here’s her (unfinished) LO, done by me!

my boy

Love how she used the stencil, with 4 layers of acrylic paint! It’s super cool and dimensional, and the confetti was awesome, so big right now as an embellishment. She also die cut hearts from a circle of wood veneer, backed them with patterned paper and then added glossy accents – one of my favourite things – but the best part was the title; we wrote our words, then hand cut them, love it!

my boy – shiny glossy!

My LO turned into two LO’s! The first one I did had a smaller centre section and I felt it was too little space for a pic, so I turned it into a home decor piece:

Like a bird I sing…

…but then I felt bad for the people who wanted to be able to add pictures so at 11:30 the night before, I changed it up a little to make a bigger central portion:

You make my heart smile

…and then I gave everyone the choice of which LO they did. That means trying to teach two sets of slightly different instructions at once – ha!

I think everyone had fun – we even had three out-of-towners! I love seeing new faces at classes – hopefully we didn’t scare them away and they’ll make the trip in to play with us again! Thanks for coming ladies, it was great to meet you all!

I’ll be back tomorrow with a new Tuesday Technique series – get ready to stencil!
